Tooth Form

Compared to permanent teeth, primary or deciduous teeth are smaller but have a more squat and bulbous appearance.  The enamel of primary teeth is whiter, the dentin is thinner and the pulp chamber is proportionately larger.  The enamel of permanent teeth has more yellow, brown, or gray tones.
